JEDDAH: The Saudi Ministry of Justice will publish judicial news, reports and coverage in English as part of a plan to “spread justice culture domestically and globally.”
As part of a project launched by Saudi justice minister Waleed Al-Samaani, ministry reports will be sent to media outlets inside and outside the Kingdom as well as digital and social media platforms.
The project is the latest in the ministry’s efforts to highlight judicial developments, and “spread justice culture” as part of the National Transformational Program (NTP) 2020.
It also announced the launch of a Twitter account in English (@MojKsa_EN) to raise awareness of the judicial and legal system in Saudi Arabia, familiarizing an English-speaking audience with their rights and duties.
“This project is part of a bigger plan by the ministry to expand on social platforms and open dialogue with English speakers inside and outside Saudi Arabia,” said Majid Al-Khamis, the head of media and corporate communication inside the ministry.
“We want to establish an interactive platform on digital and social media to help English speakers better understand the justice system within the Kingdom and know more about the services and procedures for those who want to benefit from legal services,” Al-Khamis said.
The project will help the public to benefit from judicial services offered through the ministry’s portal and social media platforms.
Videos and graphics will be used to highlight messages focusing on commercial courts and investors’ rights to ensure foreign investors are aware of the regulations. The legal rights of families, children, women and the labor community will also be featured.
